Looking for a new wallet? Tired of leather, canvas, plastic, and other such typical wallet materials? How about one made from wood? Yes, wood.
Slim Timber offers these minimalist wallets in both Maple and Walnut. They’re 4″ wide, 2.5″ tall, and 3/4″ thick, and can hold a mix of about 8 ID and credit cards. A leather strap keeps the wallet contents in place and closes with a magnetic clasp.
These wallets are made in the USA and are priced at $45 via Slim Timber.
So how would one make a DIY version of these wallets/card cases?* I’m thinking some scrap hardwood, a router or sander, a drill press and combination of brad and forstner bits, long burrs or router bits, maybe some precision chisels, and a durable varnish?
